Tortellini Caesar Salad
This salad was served at a dear friend's baby shower by a health-conscious friend, who suggested the dressing be prepared with low-fat or fat-free ingredients. Either way, the creamy dressing has plenty of garlic flavor and coats the pasta, romaine and croutons nicely. —Tammy Steenbock, Sembach Air Base, Germany
Brunch Fruit Salad
This appealing fruit salad is a lovely addition to breakfast, lunch or even supper. Light and refreshing, it's perfect alongside egg bakes, sausages and other hearty staples you find on breakfast buffets. —Millie Vickery, Lena, Illinois
tip 2 You can make a vegetarian leftover dish by layering a few of your side dishes on top of one another and baking it like a “leftover lasagna”. For example, a layer of mashed sweet potatoes topped with a layer of green bean casserole and a layer of mashed potatoes and baked with some grated Parmesan cheese on top.
tip 1 Stir a splash of white wine, like our Chardonnay, into your gravy to wake it up and take it from “leftover” to “brand new.” Simmer on the stove for a few minutes and serve – the wine will give it brightness and acidity.
